Visiting Fellowship - sponsor duties

Faculty who become a sponsor for a Visiting Research Fellow or Senior School Fellow, will be expected to act as a point of contact and to make reasonable attempts to integrate them into the life of the School where appropriate.

The sponsor's role may include:

  • Supporting the applicant through the visiting fellow application process
  • Introducing them to other members of the School
  • Guiding applicants to relevant areas of the US campus and facilities e.g. Housing Office website in advance of visit
  • Meeting with the fellow from time to time to answer any questions they may have or direct them to someone who can help them
